This paper presents the initiative design research and projects of developing a public transport information service in China based on big data analysis technology and ubiquitous computing. Follow the blooming of information technology; Artificial Intelligence begins to intervene deeply into people’s ordinary life in China. The cities need new design to solve urbanization issue, improve the well being of its citizens. In this paper, we put the emphasis on the introduction of our information model and the information service system. The information service model will create new design thinking and opportunities for solving the complicated urban problem. We design a public transport information service system that includes Tidal-waiting line, Dynamic station board, APP called “TravelMate” and so on. The public transport information service design project based on the information service model is showed as examples, and hope to provide a new framework for the further design research in urban media design.
